when & how to cut back a big privet hedge
I have a mature privet hedge which runs north/south and is 80 yard long. It is about 6ft wide & 8ft high. If I cut it back by about 1ft on both sides and reduce the height by 1ft, all the green growth will be cut off. Will the hedge survive? What is the best time of the year to do it? Should I only do one side at a time?
